A number of supportive, appreciative comments:

1) You are utterly and completely insane.

2) You have a serious problem with deca-centrism. Why not top nine or top twelve?

3) Man, it must have been tough to pick your ten favorite from 1967, given how many shows you had to choose from.

4) I agree with your choices of shows from the 11/73 and 10/74 Winterland runs, but I think I'd also have to include 11/10/73 for the Playin' medley alone.

5) Kudos for including the 9/11/73 show from William & Mary. You are clearly an emotionalist. The Dark Star > Morning Dew > Sugar Magnolia brings tears to my eyes. Just thinking of the held Phil bombs with the subtle guitar harmonics descending into Morning Dew makes me weepy.

6) I agree with about half of your 1969 choices.

7) Your 1972 list perplexes me. How could you have so little from September, and no 9/21? That said, I suppose I should give a listen to the shows you list from July of that year.

8) I assume you left out 1976 because all of the shows give such joy that it was simply impossible to narrow down to ten. One could find ten in June alone.

See--eight comments! Not ten. Octaves! Octopi! Octagons!

1) Yes!

2) Twelve picks would be too easy & ten is difficult enough!

3) 1967 was easy, leave the sarcasm to Cliff!

4) There are dozens of shows not listed by Cliff that could make any ones lists, this is subjective!

5) 9/11/73 IS Cliffs favorite of 1973!

6) 1969 is very difficult, on any given day (tomorrow for instance), these lists might look different!

7) 1972 is not one of Cliffs favorite years. Some of these shows were chosen for particular Jams or suites of music. If you don't know why they are listed, you should check them out!

8) Regarding 1976, lets leave it be. Cliff is already taking enough shit from the >77 folks!

9) The purpose of this post is for Cliff to learn about shows that he has omitted, and to hip folks to shows that they may be surprised to see on Cliffs lists!
